Outside of my business, I am an avid reader that loves My God, My Family, and My Community. I enjoy many outdoor activities including backpacking, fishing, and photography. I am the mother of one amazing gift, my daughter, Tabatha. For many years I have been a Sunday School Teacher at our church, HMBC. I have organized many fundraisers, including: shoe, coat, school supply and food drives for families in need. For the past several years, I have donated many handmade items to local hospitals, including premature infant burial gowns and bereavement pouches, hundreds of hats, and handmade toys to children’s hospitals in the Midwest. During the holidays, I enjoy making Christmas stockings, hats, and scarves for area children, I firmly believe in the gift of giving to others.
